    Our school of music may be purchasing a brand new Double manual French Harpsichord. Our new director would like an estimate ASAP.
    For starters, please share any thoughts and recent experiences as far as which makers (that currently either has or can build a great French double Manuel in a timely manner) you would highly recommend. I must START on this process!
    Best to all, Kevin Fortenberry

    PS-this will be placed in our main recital hall & will be our primary instrument. We already have a good ole Kingston recently refurbished by Richard himself & a small little Italian Martin to be used as floaters, etc

    Hello Kevin,
    Check out Andrew Garlick of UK and Carey Bebe of Australia-they make French Doubles. Good workhorses.
    Best,
    Lim
